Morgan McCabe– Mustangs Ahead

Driving and parking safety is especially important as more Mustangs come back to campus

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- With hybrid Mustangs back to school full time the LRHS parking lot has gotten busy. That means increased traffic extra safety measures are being taken to protect Mustangs.

Discipline dean Jacob Sponsel stated, “All cars should have a visible parking pass on their car and must be parked in the spot listed on their pass. Mustangs who park at the Ranch who do not have a pass or are in the wrong spot will be fined five dollars.”

All COVID-19 restrictions will be enforced in the parking lot to keep Mustangs as safe as possible. “All Parking lot rules and guidelines can be found on the LRHS Parking Schoology page and will be set force by the school district while they are in the parking lot,” stated Sponsel.

Safety inside the Ranch parking lot is just as important as safety getting to the Mustang parking lot.

School resource officer and Manatee Sheriff Deputy Paul Harris stated, “The biggest thing is see something, say something. Make sure your doors are locked and all your belongings are either safely hidden or with you.”

Mustangs have access to the FortifyFL app where they can anonymously send a tip to the school resource officers about anything they have seen at the Ranch.

Harris continued, “Our main goal is Mustang safety and measures are being taken to try and achieve that both inside and outside of the Ranch.”
